Spring is knocking on the door, you guys! I cannot WAIT for the sunshine, the warmer weather, and the fresh pop of color from fragrant fresh flowers!
As we come out of our winter “hibernation,” we are also gearing up for a busier schedule. From 3 different soccer teams’ practices and games, to spring break, Easter, and school performances, there’s no shortage of running around.
That’s why now, more than ever, I’m relying on quick-prep recipes that get me in and out of the kitchen with minimal effort and maximum flavor!
This breakfast casserole with bacon, egg, cheese and crescent rolls checks all of the boxes.
With just a few minutes of prep, I can throw together a show-stopping meal that will impress guests for a holiday brunch…and that will make my husband smile at the dinner table on a busy weeknight! Breakfast for dinner is the best, right?!
You definitely don’t need to wait for a special occasion to serve a crescent roll casserole!
Before we get to the details of the recipe itself, I’m going to share my best time-saving, busy-mom trick of all: online grocery shopping at Walmart!
Holy cow, this service has seriously changed my life!
Any parents with little kids know that it can be an exhausting undertaking to haul multiple children through a crowded store. It’s time-consuming, it’s stressful, and we often leave frustrated and overwhelmed. Not anymore!
Ever since our local Walmart started offering a FREE online pickup service, I’ve never looked back. At least once a week (and often more), I sit down at my computer whenever it’s convenient (at night, early in the morning, during nap time, etc.) and select my groceries.
From the comfort of my couch, I can enjoy a cup of coffee or a TV show while clicking the boxes of the items on my list.
Walmart’s website saves the products that I purchase frequently, so I’m sure that I never forget one of our staples. Plus, it’s one-stop shopping because I can add toiletries, fresh flowers, cleaning supplies, and other household items to my list that I wouldn’t otherwise be able to purchase from a regular grocery store.
Whenever I’m ready to place my order, the website allows me to schedule my pick-up during a 1-hour window.
On this particular day, I ordered my groceries early in the morning while my kids were still sleeping, and scheduled them for pick-up that same day between 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. It doesn’t get more convenient than that, right?
When the grocery order is ready, you’re notified via email and text. You can click one button on the Walmart app to “check in” and tell the store that you’re on the way. It then tracks your progress via GPS so that the clerks know exactly when you are going to arrive.
They’re often waiting by the curb for me with my cart of groceries by the time I pull into the reserved parking spot!
I can sit in my car with the kids (and not even unbuckle any car seats) while the bags are loaded into my trunk. Everything is prepaid for with my credit card when I place my order online, so I don’t even need to get out my wallet.
I’m telling you…this is how I will forever do my grocery shopping!
Did I mention that the service is free? As long as you spend $30, there is no charge for your own personal shopper! Plus, I save a lot of money by avoiding impulse purchases or those snacks, cereals, and bakery treats that my kids like to throw into the cart.
Okay, so back to the recipe!
I (obviously) ordered all of the ingredients that I needed for this breakfast casserole with bacon online at Walmart.
The KEY ingredient for a beautiful, puffy, buttery crust are these classic Pillsbury™ Refrigerated Original Crescent Rolls. They turn out perfectly flakey and golden brown every single time!
In addition to the crescent rolls, you will need eggs, milk, cooked bacon, and shredded cheese. So simple!
If you’re interested, last week I shared a video of me making this casserole in my Instagram stories, which you can still see in my “highlights” on IG here.
How To Make A Breakfast Casserole With Bacon
Start by pressing the crescent roll dough into the bottom of large casserole dish. It’s fine if it overlaps a bit, and it doesn’t need to be perfect!
Sprinkle the chopped bacon and the cheese over top of the dough, and then whisk together the eggs and milk.
Pour the egg mixture over the crust, pop it in the oven for about 35 minutes, and ta-da!
The end result is a gorgeous breakfast casserole with bacon and crescent rolls. And you know what’s so cool?
During the baking process, the crescent roll dough flips around with the eggs, so that the base layer of the casserole is like a fluffy egg omelet, while the flakey, buttery, golden brown crust rises to the top. The crust is studded with the bacon and cheddar cheese, and finally garnished with freshly chopped chives. Basically, heaven on a plate!
This 5-Ingredient Breakfast Casserole with Bacon Is Super Easy To Make!
Whether you’re hosting a special spring brunch, attending a church potluck, or just looking for an easy dinner to serve your family, I hope that this delicious breakfast casserole with bacon makes your life in the kitchen a little bit easier!
There’s so much to enjoy this season, so it would be a shame to waste the sunny days with tedious grocery shopping or stressful meal prep. Instead, order your food online, stir together a quick one-dish meal, and get outside to cheer on the soccer sidelines, take a walk to smell the flowers, or just sit on the couch and read a good book. The work is done for you!

5-Ingredient Bacon, Egg and Cheese Crescent Roll Casserole
A simple 5-ingredient breakfast casserole with bacon, egg, cheese and crescent rolls. It's an easy, crowd-pleasing dish that comes together in just 10 minutes.
- 2 cans 8 ounces each Pillsbury™ Refrigerated Original Crescent Rolls
- 1 ½ cups cooked diced bacon (I used 17 slices of thick-cut cooked bacon, or about 5 ounces cooked)*
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 6 eggs
- 2 cups whole milk
- Salt and pepper to taste (optional)
- Optional garnish: fresh chives sliced green onions, or fresh parsley
Preheat oven to 375F/190C. Spray a 13-inch x 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
- Unroll crescent dough and spread in the bottom of the prepared dish. It’s fine if the dough overlaps slightly. Gently press together the perforations to seal the dough.
- Place diced bacon on top of crescent rolls. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Add salt and pepper, to taste (if desired).
- Pour egg mixture over bacon and cheese.
- Bake, uncovered, for 35 – 40 minutes, or until eggs are set. Check on the casserole after about 20-25 minutes. If the crust is looking golden brown, cover the casserole lightly with foil and continue baking until the eggs are set. This will prevent the crust from becoming too dark.
- Allow the casserole to rest for about 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
- Garnish with chives, green onions, or parsley.
Cooking for a Smaller Family? Cut the ingredients in half and prepare the casserole in an 8-inch square baking dish. The cooking instructions remain the same, although the baking time may be a bit shorter (30-35 minutes).
*I purchase 2 boxes of thick-cut cooked bacon for a shortcut. You can cook your own bacon at home, if you prefer.
